She captioned the post, "I became a mom right before we started shooting. At least my child will forever have the fun fact of ‘I spent most of the first year of my life in a war rig.’"
The photo shows Theron (in full costume) holding her daughter close with a purple heart emoji hiding her face for privacy reasons. Theron rarely shows photos of her children, with the last pic being from summer 2019, so this is a big deal.
She adopted Jackson in 2012 and then her other daughter August in July 2015. The Atomic Bomb actress has always been open about adoption.
“Even when I was in relationships, I was always honest with my partners, that adoption was how my family would look one day,” she told People. “This was definitely not a second option for me. It was always my first.”
Recently, the actress has been showing off her favorite moments from the movie in a series of behind-the-scene snapshots including a group selfie with her costars, a first glimpse of the infamous war rig and a pic of her impressive makeup.
While we’re sad to hear that Theron won’t be reprising her role for the upcoming prequel, we’re glad to catch a peek at her time on set (and this cute mom-daughter moment).
